I love the makeup Olivia (Kerry Washington) wears in Scandal! It’s always a bit smokey yet conservative. Here’s how to achieve the subtle, matte smokey eye that is sure to turn heads, maybe even a president’s!

Ridiculously Easy Smokey Eye Tutorial

I am pretty good with being able to understand problems people have with makeup. I’m very blessed that I just have always seemed to get how to hold my skin to apply eyeliner, what faces to make when doing my brows.. it just comes natural. I realize about 75% of people who use makeup don’t have those built in makeup superpowers. That’s okay! You should still be able to give yourself a sultry eye without a visit to the makeup counter. Here’s how!
